Book review – Namaste the Hard Way

I was looking for something easy and interesting to read when I came across this book by Sasha Brown-Worsham. I didn’t know anything about Sasha, but the book sounded interesting.

We follow Sasha on a journey as she reconnects with her mother through her yoga practice years after her mother passes away from cancer. Her mother was an avid yogini, something that rubbed Sasha up the wrong way as a teenager as all she ever wanted was a “normal” mom. She cringes from embarassment when her mom invites one of her friends to do yoga with them, she feels resentment towards her mother’s yoga practice as it takes up her mother’s time, even as she’s getting sick.

It’s a story of loss but also ultimately of understanding and reconnection. I didn’t expect to enjoy the book as much as I did and it even got me thinking about my relationship with my mom when I was younger.

Let me know in the comments below if you’ve read it and what you thought. Also, I’m always keen for book recommendations so please let me know which books you loved and think I might enjoy.
